As you build, expand, or reassess your IT infrastructure, deciding what types of racks you need and how to configure them should be a top priority.

Racks organize IT equipment, such as servers and network switches, to make efficient use of space and other resources. Depending on the options you choose, they can also improve power protection, cooling, cable management, device management, physical security, mobility, ease of installation and protection from harsh environmental conditions.

We offer a wide range of CEG-branded and vendor-specific enclosures that are sturdy, scalable, and able to address any application or environment. Not sure if you need server racks or network racks? Learn More

The Difference Between Server Racks and Network Racks

Server Racks

K

Server racks typically house rack-level compute, storage, and communications hardware in a data center.

K

Most floor-standing server racks have a common width of 24” (600mm) and varying depths and heights based on client needs.

K

Server racks typically include front and rear doors and side panels, depending on where they sit in their respective aisles.

K

Front and rear doors typically feature a perforated or mesh material that enables increased airflow through the cabinet.

Network Racks

K

Network racks typically house networking equipment: switches, routers, fiber and copper network cables, patch panels, accessories.

K

Can be “open frame” (2- and 4-post) or fully enclosed with doors.

K

Network racks are usually wider due to large amounts of cabling and cable management. Most network racks have widths of 29″ – 32″.

K

Heights and depths can “line up and match” server racks, allowing them all to be easily integrated into the same rows.
